3.   We seek the Lord's blessing for: … Pastor Dennis & Jamie, at their decision regarding the call for him to serve as Associate Pastor of Trinity/Salina;  … Lea Metz at the tragic death of her grandson, Keith O'Neil (her son, Larry's, son from his 1st-marriage);  … Levi Denney & Sara Parrish at the birth of their daughter, Paisley Veda (born February 20);  … Jon Zimmer, who has accepted the appointment to fulfill the term of Beckey Blanken as a Ministry Director (following her election last fall as Treasurer);  … the men traveling to Alaska this coming Friday for continued work on the Burle Post Retreat Center:  Trevor Adkins, Mike Denney, Kraig Elmer, Del Housworth, Denis Johnson, Travis Robertson, Jon Zimmer & Pastor Ed.   Lord, have mercy! 

4.   We raise up our efforts in sharing the Gospel in both our joint ministry as a congregation, and in our individual opportunities to share the faith:  … at the call extended to Steve Stortz (of Christ Lutheran School in Norfolk, NE) to serve as our Principal – he and Charlene plan to visit us this coming weekend;  ... at the "designation" of Kayla Blair (a student at Concordia-St. Paul) to serve as our Kindergarten Teacher – she and her parents visited us this past week;  … in the decisions that will be made about the distribution of the tithe from the Barbara Young Estate, as we seek to support the ministry of others;  … and in our support during March of the construction of the St. Paul Community Garden (by Eagle Scout candidate, Joshua Blanken).  Let's cultivate awesome relationships for eternity!

5.   We pray for our Nation: thanking the Lord, and seeking safety, for those men and women serving military deployments (and their families here at home) to keep us safe and free, especially – Cliff Cribb & Travis Connell, both in Afghanistan; we are truly thankful for the freedom of observing our Christian faith, which is not free in other regions of our world – as seen in this past week's abduction of 220 Assyrian Christians by Islamic State terrorists in northern Syria.  God Bless America!
